Questions and Answers

How do I put in cheats in my emulator?

I'm playing Pokemon emerald right now

Are you playing on a Windows PC? If so, you'll need an emulator that allows cheats. One such emulator you can try is Visual Boy Advanced. It allows cheat codes from GameShark and codebreakers. To use them, click on Cheats and select cheat list:

Select from either GameShark or codebreaker and enter your codes. When finished, click OK.

At what level should I evolve my Pikachu to a Raichu?

I've been leveling my Pikachu quite a bit lately, and I found this thunder stone a while ago. However, I do not know when to use It. I have tried: I've tried searching the web for help, but there isn't really a good answer. I think it was caused by: I just haven't got to this point yet

Evolve it whenever you want. I suggest that you wait until it learns all the moves that you want it to because after it evolves into Raichu, it won't learn any new moves by leveling up. Depending on what game you have, you should be able to find the most powerful move it learns in that game and what level it learns it on Bulbapedia. For example, the most powerful move it learns in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire is Thunder, which it learns at level 58.

It doesn't work, and I don't know what I did wrong or how to fix it?

So, I'm currently playing a different than the normal version of Pokemon Emerald. What changed is that the Pokemon is a lohan Pokemon instead of normal Pokemon. I don't think this affects anything, but I'm just going to throw it in here. Anyways, I entered the master code, and then copied and pasted the salamance code in. I'm sure it's Emerald, but it doesn't work. Can anyone help me, please? By the way, I also tried a lot of other cheats, but none of them seems to work. I'm using a GBA. I've done all I can. I followed the video, but it still doesn't work. I have tried: Everything, searching on Google, YouTube and stuff like that. Already tried the same method and a few other methods a few times, I'm positive I didn't do it wrong. I think it was caused by: I really don't know. That's why I'm asking -.- Please answer I really want to beat this game that I've been stuck on for about a month.
